 The Copenhagen Wheel – Hybrid Power Bike System Unveiled for COP15

The Copenhagen Wheel was unveiled on December 15 at the COP15 climate conference. The hybrid power kit installs on a regular bicycle and stores power through normal cycling and braking. The stored power then provides a boost when you need it. The system can be controlled through your smart phone, locking and unlocking your bike, monitoring your effort level, setting the amount of “boost” you need, and providing traffic information, routing, city destination information – even pollution levels.

The Copenhagen Wheel project was conceived and developed by the SENSEable City Lab for the Kobenhavns KommuneDucati Energia assisted on developing prototypes for the project, and funding was provided from Danish Ministry for the Environment. Progical Solutions LLC provided technical support for the iphone control of the bikes.
